CES 2014 has revealed the giants in their bestest forms. With Apple and Samsung having appeared as the leaders in the run-up, we were surprised with the wares that Lenovo had up its sleeves. What came as a stunner to us is the Lenovo ThinkPad X1 Carbon.
Touted as the slimmest ultra book around, the gadget has a lot to offer than just superb looks. Here is a face-to-face spec tale of the Lenovo kid against the Apple Macbook Air and Macbook Pro 2013.
Apple Macbook Air is sexy in its slim avatar. With 18.55 millimeters to boast, Apple gives tough competition to Lenovo ThinkPad X1. Apple weighs slightly less than Lenovo here but the cable story takes the cake away from the latter. With Apple’s connector coupled with the Macbook Air, the crown for the winner rests atop Apple. As far as the Macbook Pro is concerned, the metal body again takes a beating against the carbon-bodied Lenovo ultra book.
Lenovo X1 Carbon comes with touch screen that is responsive and this is topped up with 1600×900 pixels on the display front. Apple comes with 1440×900 pixels for the Macbook Air while it comes with a Retina display in the Macbook Pro. For us, Apple is the winner here.
